There always has been and will be in all 2nd terms of Presidents, changes in the Cabinet and high aids in the Executive department. Some get pushed out as becomming a liability (like Rove may become) or not toeing to the Presidents policies. Some will leave as they can't take the heat anymore or don't want to kiss the President's butt anymore or their ideas are being ignored or dismissed. Some leave due to the extreme demands of time in those levels of work away from their families and friends. Some others just leave because they want to make more money in the private sector as lobbyists, corporate leaders, either for reasons for greed or family needs such as 1 or more children in college.

If there are some wholesale changes, it's not so much for the Bush White House, but for Congressional Republicans, who, after a disasterous '05 year, are pushing the WH for some goo PR going into '06.
With the problems of the Bush WH, with the indictment of Delay, and with the possible indictment of Frist, Congressional Republicans are going into '06 as unsure, I think, as they have, in a decade. They could lose their majority in the Senate, and will most likely see their majority in the House trimmed.
The GOP needs some good news, and none, really, is on the horizon. At least a WH shakeup could stem the tide.
God yes. His press briefings have become crucifictions. The way he's been grovelling lately - not only is it completely unprofessional, but it certainly would not have been acceptable to administrations past (Democrat AND Republican). How he's kept the job for so long is beyond me.

REPLY 10, BF757300, wow, don't you right wingers get tired of saying this old worn out line again, it's the liberals and their media allies. Next thing you will say is that all these things are going on (Rove, etc) because of Clinton!
How many stations does Air America have vs. Limbaugh and Hannity, please give me a break about the liberal media.

Quoting PIA777 (Reply 22): He was never elected in the first place. Gore is the real President in my eyes.
Well, then you deny the reality of the situation. I didn't agree with SCOTUS getting involved in a state's decision, but having said that, every recount shows that Mr. Bush won Florida by an incredibly narrow margin over Mr. Gore. And, in that case, Mr. Bush won the election, fair and square under or process of vote.
Now, you may not like Mr. Bush; you may not like the fact he won the election but not the popular vote, but the historical fact remains he won the election.
As a litte jab at Mr. Gore, had he just paid a little attention to his home state and it's 11 Electoral votes, he would have had at least 4 years in the WH. He has no one to blame but himself.
